Idd2 exhibits additive inheritance. Homozygosity for NON/Lt-derived alleles confers reduced rate of diabetes onset.

Mapping and Phenotype information for this QTL, its variants and associated markers


The percentage of circulating CD4+ T Cells in NOD/Smrf mice is 40-50% greater then NON/Lt mice, enabling the investigation of how this quantitative phenotype segregates in a BC1 population (NON/Lt x NOD/Smrf)F1 x NOD/Smrf and in an F2 population (NON/Lt x NOD/Smrf)F1 x (NON/Lt x NOD/Smrf)F1. Statistical analysis using t-tests showed a significant correlation of circulating CD4+ T cells with the mouse Chromosome 9 marker D9Mit12 in both male and female segregants. The gene or genetic region responsible for this phenotype is termed Tlf (T lymphocyte frequency) Importantly, the authors show a correlation of Tlf with diabetic incidence as expressed by NON/Lt and NOD/Smrf mice suggesting that Tlf may in fact be the mouse Chromosome 9 locus Idd2.
